In May 2010, this replica of the Gullywhumper appeared after completion of the Rivers of America refurbishment. It replaced an original Gullywhumper keelboat that was removed from the Rivers of America in April of 2009, due to extensive damage and rot.
Piggybacking on the Davy Crockett's popularity, the Mike Fink Keel Boats attraction opened in December of 1955. The attraction initially used the two actual boats from the Davy Crockett series, however they were soon replaced with larger, three window replicas. The keelboats operated seasonally (summers and busy weekends) until an accident occurred on May 17, 1997. An overloaded keelboat capsized, leading Disneyland to permanently close the attraction.
